As part of the intensive preparations for a hitch-free 2022 UTME/DE registration exercise, the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) is putting finishing touches to all arrangements for the institution of an additional USSD code to be used by candidates besides the 55019 code that had been in operation since 2018 for registration and other essential services offered by the Board. 

The 55019 code is used to create profiles for registration by candidates who are required to send their National Identification Number (NIN) via the code for their details to be pulled from the NIMC database before proceeding to a certified centre for their biometric capturing. 

To ensure that there is no congestion during registration when many candidates would be sending their requests via 55019 for the 2022/23 UTME/DE Registration and Examination, the Board has concluded arrangements to have an alternative code with a similar function for the benefit of candidates should they encounter any unexpected challenge with the other code.

It is to be noted that the Board had used the 55019 USSD code exclusively in the last three or four UTME Registration and Examination exercises successfully, but in launching another code, the Board is aligning its service delivery with global best practices as well as a desire to eliminating completely any hurdle that could ever be encountered by candidates in a bid to create their profiles. This would ensure that candidates get value for money spent as well as the quality service they deserve.
